From 1938 to 1943, Francisco G. Algibay (1901-1975), under the pseudonym ‘Couto,’ published various cartoons in Frente Popular and España Libre to illustrate European fascism and its support for Franco. Couto worked at a meat market in the Bronx. Frente Popular rated him as a revolutionary cartoonist” (“Jerónimo Villarino” Oct. 15, 1937). Couto would be considered an “enlightened worker,” a concept suggested by Jorell Meléndez Badillo to define workers who adopt new identities in their free time, which were denied during the workday.
